My toppings for both pan and thin pizzas consist of tomatoes, onions, red and green peppers, tuna, mozarella cheese and sometimes with mushrooms and olives as replacement. I don't mind doing it with ham and pineapples but DH hates it. He believes that fruit should not be used in dishes!

Ah yes, Greeks and their aversions to fruit and/or nuts in "regular food"! I know this one well!

I still remember an aunt of my husband's poking at my cashew chicken on the buffet (unaware that I was behind her, I'm sure) and repeating "nuts? with chicken?" over and over as if she simply could not compute. I half expected to see sparks fly out of her ears.

Has your DH tried pineapple? I converted my husband and converted my kids' piano teacher too, both starting out feeling quite certain they were going to be poisoned.

Not quite yet but I do sneak in some fresh cut pieces when I prepare my Peranakan dishes. My excuse to him is that it's my cuisine and he better eat it!! I once tried a chicken dish with prunes served in a restaurant here since it was highly recommended by the owner. It was so sweetish that I couldn't eat anymore. Needless to say, I pointed that out to him with glee and all he said was that it was not traditional. I guess the dish would have been nice if they have not overdone it.

Wow, you guys/gals have some interesting combos!! My all time fav is pepperoni and jalapeno... (jalapeno not listed!!) Some variations of this would be to add sausage and or mushrooms and or bacon. That is about it for me... I do not go outside these borders for some reason.... and to tell you the truth, pizza is sounding pretty good for dinner tonight!!!!

DS... I am surprised that you don't have sushi listed for on top of your pizza... perhaps some superwhite, and salmon... ohhhh... my mouth is watering now!!!!

I love anchovies on anything, especially pizza. The one topping I cannot abide is (shudder) pepperoni.
June is right. Her fave is very close to what we call "marinara". You can add some anchovy fillets, and then it will become "Napolitana".

My favourite cheeseless pizza variations.

1. shred onions and bell peppers, pile them on the pizza dough with chopped olives, capers, salt, pizza herbs and good evoo.

2. slice the potatoes very thin, preferably with mandolin, then sprinkle with garlic powder, rosemary sprigs and salt, + drizzle of evoo.

Both of them are also tomatoless, come to think of it!

I checked all but tomatoes, ham/Canadian bacon, and extra cheese. I like to put sliced jalapeno rings on my pizza. Here is a great pizza thread.
